Well, let's get down to it!
1) Show me yours since you see mine!
2) Do you collect or do you have 1 for EDC?
3) Why the Blur and not many of the others?
4) Who else collects the rare ones???
I have re-started my Blur passion this last month and have since started my collection again. I believe the BLUR 1670, is the best EDC Assisted Folder IMO, for my hand size and uses, they are the best! Especially with the more rare metal types like S30V or S60v, even CMR154! I love the new 14C28N steel as well and that is the style for my new EDC, I have owned the Original 1670BLKST and on my third now, not because they fail. I seem to lose them at night!
How does one post, large pictures, on this forum?
I've only got the one (Blunt tip, 1/2 serrated blade, and glass breaker). Do you find that the "grip tape" tears up your pocket when EDC'ing them?
Indeed the Trac-Tec inserts chew up my pocket edges, and I have Blur Pants on almost every pair. Though, this doesn't stop me from carrying daily at all. Best feeling grip I have ever held. If you do a bit of research, you can find a nice Carbon Fiber Inlay-Insert instead of the Trac-Tec. It provides a smooth/sticky grip on skin, but slides on clothes without tearing.
Careful though, once you get one, you might not want o abuse it since it is a work of art!
The two I own are both workhorses rather than collectors.

Love it! My work horse is #7 in the pic 1670RDBLKST and the Original 1670BLKST that is being resharpened by KAI right now, I love their service!
